Okay I can't say who but I have an 8 yr old in my family that is "spotting" and cramping and starting to get hair down below. Is this normal? Her mother started her period when she was 8 too but I am shocked. 8 yrs old is so young. I didn't get my period till I was 13yrs old. She is also starting to get her boobs. I thought that was normal but not the cramping and spotting and pubic hair. Does anyone else think this is strange or do you know someone who was young and going through puberty?
